I love giving gifts! In fact, I deemed this year, my Year of Gratitude. My hope is to remind those I love, just how much they mean to me. I’ve used a number of Tiny Prints stationery to send thank you cards, but there have been a number of instances where I’ve needed to also send along a gift. That’s why I was so excited to see that I could personalize wrapping paper through Tiny Prints as well! I think giving someone a well thought out gift is so rewarding, and you can make it even more special by personalizing it. I wanted to share a few gift wrapping ideas to take your ordinary wrapping to extraordinary, with just a few personal touches!
- White wrapping paper
- Personalized wrapping paper
- Black Tissue Paper
- Gold Sharpie Paint Pen/ black Sharpie
- Black india ink (or any other black ink pen)
My best friend just turned 29, so I wanted to get her a gift that would be extra special. I chose this acrylic photo block because she’s a photographer, and rarely gets photos captured of herself. She and her husband visited Colorado recently and got this great shot of the two of them – I knew it would mean so much to her to have a physical copy! To make the gift even more personal, I decided to take my white wrapping paper and personalize it with some special words, using my watercolor brush and india ink. I love how it turned out! You can use this same concept for any occasion!
I had a few other gifts to give her as well, so I picked up a few plain bags and boxes to work with. To make my otherwise simple gold bag more festive, I just took my black sharpie pen and wrote a note to her – you can use this as your card, to share an encouraging word! This complimented the simple black tissue that I took my gold sharpie paint pen to, and made a few simple designs on.
I love how these turned out, and they are fun and easy to create! You can use this same concept for any occasion: weddings, showers, graduations, birthdays… the possibilities are endless! I hope you will try this out the next time you get to give a gift to someone you care about! Thank you for letting me share with you today!
